"Incredible 1 day tour of Muir Woods and Napa Valley!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Had the absolute best day on this tour! Muir woods were stunning and we visted 3 wineries throughout both Sonoma and Napa Valley and they definitely weren't short on the wine.. usually at tastings you get only a couple of tiny test size glasses.. the places we went had so many wines you could try and weren't shy on how much they poured!! Our tour guide Antony was easily the best tour guide I have ever experienced (and I've done 100s of tours before) - He was so naturally entertaining, informative yet gave you your space and time to enjoy each place - I hope everyone gets him!! Group was also great - overall amazing day thank you so much and 100% recommend this tour to everyone!!

It’s my first time in SAN FRAN, as I was here for a work conference and thought, I have to stay through the weekend! I stayed at a hotel in Union Square and immediately as we checked in asked about tours as one of my best girlfriend’s came into town to meet me so we could enjoy the city! TOUR TIME Pick up was 7:45 am and the day started by a beautiful hike in Muir Woods with breathtaking views, plenty of time to stroll, take photos and truly enjoy all the park had to offer with the guidelines they provided. It’s a little over a mile hike, and I am not a sprinter in these cases, but wanted to take the photos of nature, the selfie opportunities and see all there is - plus I am short and I take longer sometimes to get around! But this was NOT the case, it was perfectly timed out from pick up to our first destination! Along with all the history and knowledge our host/driver offered as we made our way out of the city, through the tunnel and off to our destinations. P.S. The Robin Williams tunnel ... yes it’s just a tunnel, but anyone who loves movies, theatre and all the surrounding areas of SAN FRAN will greatly enjoy all the fun facts and history here! They had just named the tunnel 6 months before we got to go through! WINE STOP #1 The views and photo ops were simply the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is the best place for photo and is the medium size winery of the tour. We were greeted by our host, Erick, a wine expert who had a chemical engineer background! He knew all about the science behind the wine given it’s new owner who had a huge passion behind the health benefits and was a scientist himself! VIP LUNCH It was allocated in a town full of great places to explore, shop and taste wines, whiskey or chocolates! We went to the Bistro our VIP lunch was located that included wine pairings for each item. There was a total of a 3 course meal and included a cheese and fruit plate with a rose champagne, so yummy! Then a choice of salad or soup, but everything about the menu, you choose when you book the trip! I chose the salad and then it came with a savion blanc which was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. The next course was the finale; I chose the ravioli with meat sauce and it came with a red blend, a little heavier as far as taste. The food and wine were great! The even better part was that our MAGICAL HOST recommended that we try certain things and what they were as the area was rather full of selections and you can only do so much in a little over an hour! One of the first options was the FREE CHOCOLATE TASTING in the area that was truly the cutest place with great customer service and yummy chocolate. I ended up buying an array of options to enjoy for $14 which included 7 pieces is chocolate, this is after I tried a couple options! WINE STOP #2 (Where we bought 3 bottles of wine... 😊) This was a great presentation of wine selections and our host truly was knowledgeable and then would ask what we wanted to try, everything, ok! It was a boutique style and the smallest of the winery’s we visited. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly along with taking interest in what we liked, our palette and what our interests were! There were a lot of selections after the The wine tasting, so for me, who has visited a winery, it wasn’t limiting in the amount you could try and we’re offered! WINE STOP #3 (I bought 1 bottle of wine!) Pudding the donkey, Rich was our host and was the winery that was the largest of all our winery tours. It was my least favorite of the 3 but still a great experience and not bad at all! Our MAGICAL HOST informed us that our winery tour would include a jazz musician who would close his eyes when he presented... I thought he was being funny, but again, he never failed at being spot on! Rich had a lot of knowledge and showed us some cool contraptions used to crush grapes! Then we went to try some wine after learning the history behind their venue and the way they manufacture their wine! I bought a bottle of wine - the Zinfendale - and it was what we planned to have for dinner in Little Italy! Our tour guide informed us of some opportunities to walk the crooked road and then head to Little Italy! BONUS STOP The SAN FRAN BRIDGE! He let ya go there and take photos! So cool! Overall, such a great tour of everything the city has to offer and MORE!

We went on the Yosemite winter tour and Denise was our tour guide driver. She did an excellent job to ensure our comfort and safety during the tour. She gave us Aton of information and we learned so much about the area. She also took many pictures for us and took us to the best lookout points. The bus was very comfortable and spacious. The tour company was very professional and prompt with returning my emails. I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone!
